As far as Florida, I won't disagree, however I think the issue is a lot more widespread than just this state. I have a lot of friends who are teachers from California to New Mexico to Virginia. FWIW, a friend at my school moved to VA during the summer and misses it down here in Central FL; she says that the students are a lot less motivated with worse overall behavior at the new school. Which I don't think indicates anything at all other than that there are some serious issues within the educational system in many states across the nation.
In short, I agree with the person who stated that creating fictional classes crosses a line that having tutors do the work of student athletes does not. That happens with non-athletes too...it happens to many who have ANY kind of label. We simply do not currently live in a country in which there is a strong sense of actual accountability, and I don't care what political direction you lean or socioeconomic strata you find yourself in. If you don't believe me, that is your prerogative, but a stint working in any public service office would probably change your mind. Or heck, just watch TV...every single commercial break contains at least one ad for some civil law firm, and I find that sad.
